        @ “There was some frustration, anger, sadness and a lot of hurt and pain as well.”

        I have to agree with the words above, but also, that those feelings didn't all come from black Americans . You don't have to be a black American to have had the same feelings, but to only have a heart.

        I don't believe all the truth was told about Trayvon Martin especially about what he was accused of doing the night he died.
        However, we can't let the ones who want trouble at any cost, even using a 17 year old boys death as the reason, to sully his name and cause further pain for his mother and father.

        Zimmerman has not gotten off scot free as some may think. He still has to live as someone else said above, and he will have to have memories of that night. He will still hear at times in his own mind , the boys screams.
        If there are any lies he may have told about the night he and the boy met, he will have to forever keep them a secret. That is punishment in itself.
